On November 14th, during the celebration in the Meeting Hall of the Krakow City Council, Kraków Airport was awarded the tile of the Patron of Culture in Kraków in 2015. President Radosław Włoszek received the silver statuette from President of Kraków, Mr Jacek Majchrowski, in the Donor category.
Kraków Airport was appreciated for “constant and significant co-funding of cultural institutions and events related to Kraków”. The airport nominated as many as three partners to the competition, i.e. Łaźnia Nowa Theatre, the Villa Decius Association and the Krakow Industrial Society.
Kraków Airport has been a Patron of Kraków Opera and the Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków for many years. Due to the cooperation with the Kraków Festival Office, Kraków Airport participates in the most important cultural events in Kraków. All activities carried out by the port together with cultural institutions are consistent with the Company's image of a responsible unit that is sensitive to the cultural heritage of Kraków and Małopolska region. In addition, Kraków Airport organises a grant competition aiming at supporting local initiatives, including the cultural ones from the airport's neighbouring counties.
